Then and Now

At one point in the early 80s I was completely without funds. But when I saw the Celestial Arts publication of Carl Bark's Uncle Scrooge McDuck, I just had to have it. The so totally cool bonus was this signed print. I scrounged up pennies, I dug through old pockets, I did odd (really odd) jobs. I didn't have enough money for food, but I finally came up with enough for the book and print. It was $200 back then, I've heard that the value is 10 times that now. I missed a few meals then, but I still have this now.
